Dec 8, 2012:

Awesome El Salvador

Distance to Date: 13,312 km / 8,254 mi

These countries in Central America keep getting better and better! People are so nice and helpful, and street food vendors are frequent. We ride a little, stop for a cold drink and some munchies and continue. The road condition in Honduras was challenging with potholes and barely any shoulder; but the highway here in El Salvador is awesome!

We crossed into El Salvador two days ago and should be crossing the border for Guatamala in three days or so. We take it easy an ride about 50 to 60 kms a day. We start early and are usually off the bike by 2 pm. With hotels so inexpensive (about $8), we stay in cities and use the rest of the afternoon to wander the streets. Cycle touring is such a great way to be a tourist!



Finally, Tauru gets a wardrobe change with a new shirt. Expect to see more of it in future photos.

Leaving Honduras. Awesome country, awesome people, but the potholes do need to be filled.

Over the bridge to El Salvador.

El Salvador on one side and Honduras on the other. Rivers all over the world separate boundaries.

Hoping that Volcano San Miguel does not erupt as we ride by it.

Early morning and time to clock in for the day.

Usulutan is a busy town and so we walk through it.

Oh yeah, Christmas is just a little over two weeks away.

Tauru concentrates on getting through town...

...as Christi looks for breakfast.

Hot dogs are definitely breakfast of champions. That is, champions of eating anything and everything.

Almost out of town.

Christmas carols are running through his head - if Rudolph finds Central America too hot, can Santa use a bike with a trailer to deliver his gifts?

Roadside restaurant for lunch.

"How many more colas do I need to keep me cool in this heat?"

Okay, "love motels" are popular in this part of the world. Rooms can be reserved for 3 hours or overnight. This one has a sensual picture to inspire couples to ...well, you know. It also has a picture above to remind couples of the consequences. (These are also the most economic options for sleeping if you don't want to camp.)
